We have mentioned the eXact Micro 7+ Pool & Spa Testing Meter numerous times on this site but we have not, as of yet that we can recall, simply listed the pool water parameters it tests along with the detection limits.
In addition to the eleven pool & spa related water parameters listed above, the meter also works well for general water quality testing applications. With the purchase of the appropriate reagentstrips and use of a conversion chart the meter also tests for: Ammonia, Chlorine Dioxide, Chromium Hexavalent, Iodine, Low Range Total Hardness, Nitrate, Nitrite, Acid pH, Alkali pH, Potassium, Sulfate, Sulfide, and Turbidity.
Health Regulations Specify DPD as the Testing Reagent
Worried about complying with health regulations that require use of DPD as the reagent when testing for chlorine residuals in pool water? No problem. The eXact Micro 7+ Pool & Spa Testing Meter uses DPD-1 for free chlorine detection and DPD-1 with DPD-3 for total chlorine detection — just like health regulations specify.
Detection Ranges for chlorine testing:
- Free Chlorine: 0.00 to 2.39 ppm w/ 0.01 resolution and 2.4-6.0 ppm w/ 0.1 resolution
- Total Chlorine: 0.00 to 2.39 ppm w/ 0.01 resolution and 2.4-6.0 ppm w/ 0.1 resolution
Metals in Pool Water a Big Concern
The eXact Micro 7+ Pool & Spa Testing Meter makes testing for the most commonly found metals in pool water (Copper, Iron and Manganese) a simple process.
Detection ranges for copper, total iron and manganese:
- Copper: 0.00 to 1.99 ppm w/ 0.01 resolution and 2.0 to 8.0 ppm w/ 0.1 resolution
- Total Iron: 0.01 to 2.00 ppm w/ 0.01 resolution
- Manganese: 0.03 to 1.52 ppm w/ 0.01 resolution
Note that the eXact Micro 7+ Pool & Spa Testing Meter has dual detection ranges for copper in pool water and it detects TOTAL iron.
